"They are tight on their lot right now," said Hollerand. "And they are looking to expand the dealership."

Hollerand said the city has been communicating with Scott Glass of Shutts & Bowen regarding a possible annexation.

"They have not submitted any applications, but they are expected to in early 2016," Hollerand said.

Glass could not be reached for comment, and the dealership did not return phone calls requesting information on the purchase.
